I have recently watched a video talking about law of attraction and how to use it. The saying ask and you shall receive is true but not the way you expect. To ask isn't to verbally or even mentally ask it's to FEEL AS IF YOU ALREADY HAVE IT. You got to put your thoughts and emotions as ONE. Imagine Feeling (physically and emotionally) Hearing Seeing Tasting and Smelling what you want. You got to believe and have faith it'll work because it will. Be as clear as you can as if you were to miss 1 piece of information it might be different than what you wanted.
It works the opposite way too subconsciously, which is why you may have shitty moments in life. If you believe this is the case for you ask what beliefs do I have. Is it beneficial to me and the life I want. Do these beliefs belong to me or did I pick it up from someone else.
